Born in Amsterdam, raised by the world! This is Heineken's slogan. The former brewery located in the centre of Amsterdam has been transformed into a sensational, interactive tour.
There is so much to see in this typically Dutch, historic area; various museums, artisan workshops (including cheese and clogs), working mills (paint, oil, wood and mustard), fun streets with shops and authentic typical green wooden houses.
More than one hundred and forty historic buildings from around the former Zuiderzee form a complete village here. Visit the cheese warehouse and join the blacksmith. Come to discover! Has history made you hungry? Then eat a delicious freshly smoked fish at the fish smokehouse or at café Hindeloopen enjoy something delicious with a wonderful view over the lake.
Volendam is one of the most popular tourist destinations in North-Holland. Tourists come here from all over the world to be able to cross "De Dijk", to have your picture taken in traditional Volendam’s clothing, or eat freshly smoked eel.
The Uitgeestermeer (lake of Uitgeest) is located in the nearby village of Uitgeest. Explore this beautiful nature reserve with a sloop or sailboat. Prefer to work on your condition? Then you can take a sup board, canoe or just go swimming. Finish the day with a barbecue on the lakeshore.
